Frank Milner on George Morland’s ‘The Piggery’

8 September 2006 by Billy

We recorded Frank Milner’s artwork of the month talk at the Lady Lever Art Gallery on Wednesday (mp3/transcript/links).

George Morland was arguably the most popular painter of the late 18th century but only two attendees out of a packed standing room only audience had previously heard of him.

Frank Milner discusses Morland’s reputation as an alcoholic, debtor, womaniser and painter of ‘exquisite technique’.
